Thats What She Said

I'm supposed to be doing something else right now.

I don’t know if this is entertaining to anyone else, but I choose my last three movies from Netflix totally at random, and look!
1) The Last King of Scotland – I knew this was about Idi Amin’s insane reign in Uganda, and that one of the main characters was Scottish. A movie about Africa AND Scotland? Throw in some nachos and it’s like my own little slice of heaven.

2) Mississippi Masala – All I knew about this movie was that it was about an immigrant Indian family who settled in the (American) South—but guess what? The emigrated from Uganda because of Amin’s reign! And the object of the daughter’s affection? Denzel Washington! Who happens to play the starring role in mvie number 3…

3) Malcom X

Weird, no? It was like my own little game of 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, only with Uganda and Denzel Washington…

    that sounds very serendipitus (sp?). the last king of scottland is very good and also sometimes very hard to watch. consider yourself warned.

    speaking of six degrees, we just watched six degrees of separation the other day. it was kind of a weird movie, but i liked it. did you know there are movies that you can download for free from netflix?! we had to watch it on the laptop, but hey it was free! and really good quality :)

  3. I already watched The Last Kind of Scotland and I agree with your synopsis.

    I’ve never seen Six Degrees of Separation…and I did know about Netflix! It’s really cool, only it doesn’t work if you have a Mac, which is what my other laptop friends own. Total bummer.

    unfortunately kevin bacon is not in the movie. but a very young will smith is! and donald sutherland, though not so young. i feel like that guy has been old forever.

    That isn’t really that serendipitous. You were probably browsing through netflix and they linked to one another, maybe? The only reason I say this is because I have thought this had happened to me many times until I realized that I just indulge once in a while and follow the path that Netflix takes me.

  6. Dude. You’re right. Thanks for sucking all the magic out of my life.

  7. […] *Daily — thats what she said @ 1:04 pm If it seems like I’ve been writing about Netflix a lot lately, its because its true. It’s also true that I love Netflix. Like, so so […]
